The Turing Doctoral Studentships are an exceptional opportunity for talented individuals looking to embark on a career in the rapidly emerging field of data science. The Institute offers a number of places each year to graduate students to complete a PhD through the Institute and one of our university partners. Students are invited to apply to one of our university partners where, if successful, they will be registered and supervised. Students will then spend time at both their home university and the Institute headquarters at the British Library in London. View list of research areas and strategic priorities for the Turing on our website.
We are the national institute for data science, created in 2015 in response to a need for greater investment in data science research. The Institute is partnered with Newcastle University, Queen Mary University of London, University College London, and the universities of Birmingham, Bristol, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Exeter, Leeds, Manchester, Oxford, Southampton and Warwick.
There is no standard Turing student. We are looking for students who will embrace the opportunity to enrich their research and broaden their learning through their time here. In line with the Institute’s cross-disciplinary research community, we particularly welcome applications from graduates whose research spans multiple disciplines and applications. Students may propose original projects in line with any of the topics core to data science and the Alan Turing Institute’s strategic challenges.
